This batik dress was the welcome gift from Alleira that I was talking about in my first Indonesia travel post. I ended up using it after all, despite it being in XL size, for a number of reasons. The quality of this dress is nothing short of amazing, and I wouldn’t trade the print and the design for anything else. It’s something that not everyone can reproduce, so it looks like I’ll be keeping it in my closet for a long time. For these pictures, I just used a ton of pins at the back to make the dress fit better, but I do have plans to have it altered to my size soon.
I knew I said I was going to take a break from wearing brights and pastels, but the rainy season just makes you want to fight the gloominess in every way possible. The most basic thing I can do is, well, express it with fashion!
Speaking of the rainy season, it’s finally time to get your jackets out of your closet! This denim jacket is from H&M’s newest collection, and I love how it’s long and how it doesn’t have a collar. It’s all in the details.
Rarely do I wear fitted bottoms, but these shorts were just too adorable to only end up being covered by my blue velvety top. Do they look familiar? It’s because I have the same one in orange!
Mint is one of the “it” colors of 2012, if not “the” color of the year, and I don’t think I can get over it any time soon. Such a classy color that makes a rather simple outfit stand out!
